This months challenge over at the More Than Words blog was “Happiness & Sketch.” I love the sketch provided, but it took me a bit to figure out exactly what to do, and even then it was an accident! I was just playing with some old photos and new filters on my computer when I just happened to apply the on seen to this old photo I have from a family trip to the beach! The two children in the foreground are my mom and [one of] my uncles! Anyhow, as soon as that filter was applied everything just clicked (mostly) in my head!
With the sketch I, basically, did a “mirror down” lift of it, and as for happiness, who wouldn’t love going to the beach?!?! Actually, I’m not much of a beach person, but I think that’s because I’d prefer the beach if the word “private” preceded it!! LOL (My mom on the other hand, L-O-V-E-S the beach, so I’m sure she loved this day and was happy to play in the ocean!)
(As a side note, when everything clicked when the filter was applied to the photo that made me happy, but I don’t know if that counts for the challenge!! ROFL)
I’m hoping. I lost some productivity time this month when I upgraded my computer. I have the parts recorded. Editing is an entirely different process!

ReneaBouquets and Crafty City are having a collaboration this month (Aug. 2019) called Paradise In August! ReneaBouquets has two “Treasure Boxes” to choose from (Treasure Box #1, Treasure Box #2) that work wonderfully with the Mintay “Paradise” Collection available at Crafty City!
For this project I used items from Treasure Box #1, and I have more than enough to do, at least, two more projects. (For the ideas I have swimming about anyhow!)
After the following photos is the process video, some close-up photos, and a product list.
